This week I had my second singing lesson. I feel quite comfortable learning and practicing in German. As I expected, one of the challenges is the technical vocabulary. In the first couple of lessons, I noticed that I didn’t know very important words for a singing student, such as Lunge(n) [lung(s)], Kehlkopf [larynx], Kiefer [jaw], and Stimmbänder [vocal chords]. But I’m learning on the go 😃.
Some of these words can give rise to big misunderstandings. I need to be extra careful with anything that contains -spannung. For example, Verspannung means tension, and Entspannung is relaxation. I tend to confuse them all the time 😅. Thanks, Patrick for your patience! It’s good to have such a forgiving teacher.[Read more…] about Singing in German (Week 2) – Morgen
